Mozambique – Murder of Gilles Cistac (March 3, 2015)

France condemns the murder on March 3 in Maputo of our compatriot Gilles Cistac, Professor of Law at the University of Maputo, a dual citizen committed to the democratic debate in Mozambique.

This heinous crime is a violation of the freedom of expression and opinion. We are in close contact with the Mozambican authorities; we have asked them to do everything possible to ensure that the perpetrators of this murder are held accountable.

France extends its condolences to Mr. Cistac’s family.
